#BeautyCrush: Selena Gomez

We’re crushing so hard over April’s Vogue cover girl Selena Gomez. And how could we not fall head-over-heels in love, with her perfectly tousled hair, dark almond-shaped eyes, and full beautiful lips?

Selena doesn’t require tons of makeup to look gorge, but has been wearing some knockout looks on red carpets lately and her selfie game is pretty enviable. And don’t get us started on her street style, #ootd inspiration for days.

So It Looks Like We Mostly Failed Our Spring Cleaning Challenge

For our Spring Cleaning challenge, many of us tried to purge things that, let’s be real, are difficult to abruptly eliminate. It might seem easy to delete tens of thousands of emails or suddenly Mary Poppins the crap out of your house, but these things are really about built-in habits — and some habits are just not going to die (and maybe some habits aren’t even all that bad and should be allowed to continue living). Either way, read on to learn what we tried to Spring Clean, successfully or otherwise, and the lessons learned.

Weekly Must-Have: Glossier Cloud Paint

Cream-blush is my jam.   It gives me the ideal flush to look like the healthier version of myself. Although I needed another one like I need a new mascara, my Glossier-adoring self couldn’t resist the launch of Glossier Cloud Paint.   The inspiration of gradient pink NYC sunsets wasn’t what sold me, although that does sound pretty gorgeous.

Under $10: Highlighters

It’s safe to say that highlight has taken over, and in the process has put contouring to rest (sorry, not sorry). When a beauty product effortlessly makes us look like we’ve been touched by angels, it’s no wonder highlighter has become everyone’s desert island beauty must-have. And since just about every beauty product seems to be shimmer-infused, we’ll be highlighting all year long…there’s just no need to break the bank while we’re at it. 1.

Are Luxury Beauty Products Worth The Splurge?

How much are you willing to spend on luxury beauty products?I’ve read that the average American woman spends $15,000 on makeup in her lifetime. To give you some perspective, about $3,770 is spent on mascara alone. As a beauty blogger and product junkie, I can easily understand that absurd amount. If the average American woman is spending $15K in her lifetime, then I will most likely spend even more in mine because I splurge on beauty products all too frequently.

Ever wonder why the counters at Sephora are stocked with essences, sheet masks, and alphabet creams? There are a few reasons:First, Korean women have insanely high standards for their face.
